Shivaye then decides to leave Anika to her life as he says “I set you free by my will today, its your life Anika, you will decide how to live it, no one else will decide for it, not even me”. He goes.
PREVIOUSLY ON GAME OF LOVE
Anika gets shocked and calls him out. He stops and says yes. She looks at him and says nothing. He comes home. He goes to kitchen and gets some vegetables. He prepares food. Om and Priyanka fine. She says he is cooking at this time. He says its normal for him to cook late at night, but the way he is cooking, something is troubling him. She asks shall we find out. She asks Shivaye what’s happening. He says I m cooking food for you guys. Om says wow, dinner at 12.30am, we usually have dinner at 9pm.
Shivaye says so what, you can take this as a midnight snack. Om says okay. He signs Priyanka. Shivaye asks what’s the matter. Om asks what happened to you, you don’t have an answer or maybe you don’t want to, what have you done this time. Gauri says he handed over the divorce papers. Anika says its a birthday gift, he has given such a birthday gift which I will remember always. Gauri says I think what he has done is right, he has freed you from this meaningless relation. Shivaye says I know its right for Anika, but I feel a strange kind of heaviness in my heart, do you know about it. Om and Priyanka look on. Anika says Shivaye did right, I should be happy, but instead, I feel like crying Gauri. Shivaye says why is it so hot here, switch on the AC. Om says its already on. Priyanka asks has someone melted your heart….. Om asks what was Anika’s reaction. Anika says I wasn’t able to say anything, what happened, what should I say, I didn’t know how to react, Shivaye handed me these divorce papers and left.
Shivaye asks what was I supposed to do, how long could I tie her in this meaningless marriage, this was my anger, not any marriage, I have rectified my mistake, it will take time for it to get longer, Anika will get happy, she doesn’t like me. Anika says the day I have seen Shivaye’s anger, apart from that, he has many other sides, he is not just good, he is much different and special, I have seen his every emotional, I m sure that Shivaye is the best person in the world. Gauri says you know you started liking him. Anika says there was something between us, don’t know what it was, but by the time we understood, things got spoiled. Shivaye says everything got finished, anger, grudges, complaints, its over now, even our relation is over, chapter is closed. He goes. Anika says now that’s everything is over, what is the point in discussing this. She goes. Shivaye and Anika think of each other. Tu jaane na….plays…..They look at the moon
Its morning, Shivaye checks a file and asks did he also come for the interview. Khanna says yes, all the candidates have come for legal advisor’s job. Shivaye says send him in. Nikhil comes and says you…. Shivaye says I m sure you are shocked and disappointed to see me here. Nikhil says I didn’t know its your company. Shivaye says okay, that’s why one needs to do homework both in professional and personal life. Nikhil says its advised not to mix professional and personal lives, I hope our personal issues won’t affect your professional decisions. Shivaye gets angry and asks him to have water. He says I believe that a person with a bad reputation can’t be good at work, whatever you did with Anika in temple yesterday, I have figured you out, and still you hope me to give you a job.
Priyanka says relax, she will come, there will be much traffic. Om says yes, I didn’t consider traffic, I should have sent a car, I should have gone to pick her. She jokes that you should have sent a chopper for her. She laughs. Gauri comes. Om looks at her. Gauri says sorry I got late. Om asks really, I didn’t check the time. She asks why did you call me. He says we are worried for Shivaye, I m sure you are worried for Anika, there is confusion between them, we should clear it out. Priyanka says Shivaye and Anika’s marriage… they are thinking of divorce, they should give a chance to their marriage. Om says we have to do something by which their feelings come out, there is something in their hearts. Gauri says I agree, the way he apologized to Anika and celebrated her birthday, I feel he has something for her, she feels the same, she is upset since he gave divorce papers. Priyanka says same case with Shivaye.
Om says so I called you, we should try to unite them. Gauri asks what can we do. He tells his plan. Anika asks what, right now. Shivaye says I have an imp meeting. Om says there is emergency here, come quickly. Gauri says I will tell you the rest after I come, come quickly. Shivaye and Anika agree and come home. They ask the matter. Gauri says I got you here as something needs to be discussed. Om says the same. Priyanka says not us, you both need to talk. Shivaye asks about what. Om says how do we know, you guys talk. Priyanka says yes, carry on. They go.
Anika says what happened to them. Shivaye says they have gone mad, are you fine. She nods and says its good that you are here, I need to talk, you have given divorce papers.. He says I have signed, you also sign, I spoke to lawyer, proceedings won’t take much time. She says I wasn’t talking about that, I had to ask, our marriage… He says I don’t want to talk about it, I want you to meet someone, wait. He goes and gets Nikhil. She gets shocked.
She asks what’s all this. He says I spoke to Nikhil, all his misunderstandings got cleared. Nikhil recalls… FB shows Shivaye saying everything I said to break up Anika and you was a lie, there is nothing between Anika and me, in fact that video footage was also manipulated, I said all that because Daksh instigated me against Anika, I couldn’t identify her, I was wrong, she is an honest and nice girl, like you misunderstood her, you should have broken my face when I said wrong about her, but you believed me, I can only accept my mistake, you can rectify your mistake, you can give another chance to your and Anika’s relation. FB ends. Nikhil says sorry Anika, I didn’t understand you, forgive me once, it won’t happen again, I promise. She says you don’t need to apologize, maybe anyone in your place would have done this. Shivaye says she is right, lets forget the past and start fresh. Nikhil says I have forgotten it. His mum comes and says but I didn’t forget it. Khanna stops her. Shivaye says let her come. Nikhil’s mum says Anika is shameless, she and her lover got is insulted, what you are thinking will never happen, its good I saw you coming here, you were preparing to humiliate us. Nikhil says you are misunderstanding Anika.
She says you are mistaken, she is fooling you, she will marry you and then have an affair with this rich man. Shivaye says not a word more, I agree whatever happened was wrong, but its not Anika’s fault, I m at fault, believing it or not is your choice, its my responsibility to tell you, I m already ashamed for this, believe me, Anika is an honest and nice girl, she is a good daughter and sister, she will become an equally good wife and daughter in law. She says if she is so good and honest, why don’t you marry her. He says I already have….Anika looks at him.
Shivaye says Anika is an honest and nice girl, she is a good daughter and sister, she will become an equally good wife and daughter in law. She says if she is so good and honest, why don’t you marry her. He says I already have….Anika looks at him. Shivaye recalls his marriage. Nikhil’s mum says its easy to give Gyaan to other, if you have courage, you marry her. She takes Nikhil along and leaves. Om, Gauri and Priyanka come and ask why are you still standing here, why aren’t you talking. Aniak says there is nothing left to talk, come Gauri. They leave. Priyanka asks why did Anika leave. Om asks what did you say. Shivaye says nothing and goes. She says we thought is Shivaye and Anika talk, their distance will get less, but things got worse. Om asks what happened between them.
Shivaye says you just have to decide yes or not, I will handle the rest, great, I made this mistake and I will solve this, its my promise. Khanna comes and says she is here. Shivaye asks him to go. He thanks Nikhil’s mum for coming. He says I called you for a talk. She says if its about Anika, I don’t want to talk about it. He asks why, I told you already that Anika is innocent. She asks did you call me to clarify about her. He says no, Nikhil likes her and still wants to marry her. She says I don’t want this marriage to happen, Nikhil knows this. He asks why are you punishing them for my mistake.
She asks why are you taking interest in their marriage. He says their marriage was called off because of me, I can do anything to join their relation. She says you are rich, you can do anything, we are poor, I had spent all my savings on Nikhil’s marriage, how will I get them married now. He says if its just about money, don’t worry, I will take care of everything. She says but how will Nikhil manage Anika’s responsibility after marriage, he doesn’t even have a job.
He says he will work in my company at a good salary, I will hire him, I will pay for loss and take care of all marriage expenditure, do you still have any problem. She says no, son’s happiness matters the most to a mum. He says this should just be between us, Anika shouldn’t know this. She says I won’t tell her, I can do this for my son’s happiness. She goes. Anika comes and says Gauri, I got a job in Shyamali’s company. Gauri congratulates and hugs her. Anika says I will be joining from next week, I will take loan and we shall start Sahil’s treatment. She gets Nikhil’s call. Nikhil says I want to meet you right now. Anika says I m busy, can we meet tomorrow. He says fine I will call you tomorrow. He turns to Shivaye and says she said she is busy, she can’t meet me.
Shivaye asks is she busy, wait I will call and ask her. Anika smiles and says its Shivaye’s call. She answers and says yes. He says I want to meet you. She says yes, when. He asks are you busy. She says no, I m free, I was going to call you to say that I got a job. He says wow, that’s great news, we should celebrate it, shall I come now. She says sure, I will wait. He ends call. Shivaye says I will go and meet her, I will fix everything, you don’t worry. Nikhil says she said she is busy, but she agreed to meet you at once.
Anika says Gauri, Shivaye is coming, lets clean the house. Gauri smiles and says amazing, you said you are busy when Nikhil asked, but when Shivaye asked, you said you are free and he is coming here, what’s the matter. Anika says I didn’t feel like meeting Nikhil so I lied to him. She goes. Gauri smiles. Shivaye says I think she must be upset by your mom’s words, I will talk to her and sort it out. Nikhil says okay, I will leave now. He goes. Anika stops Gauri and goes to open the door. She smiles and greets Shivaye. She asks him to come in. She asks can I get you something. He says no, thanks. She says you wanted to talk. He says yes, the relation which spoilt because of me, I want to make it fine, I want to return the happiness which I snatched from you, I know what marriage means to you, you value every ritual and vow of marriage, I have made fun of those vows and bonds, but also mocked your feelings, life has given us another chance and I don’t want to miss it, I want to give you the marriage you deserve, with all the respect and pride. She asks what are you saying. He says you just have to agree, I will handle everything. He holds her hand and says tell me, do you want this marriage. She nods. He says great. They smile and hug. She gets away. Her earring gets stuck in his collar.
Jo meri manzilon ko jaati hai…… He asks are you ready for the marriage. She smiles. He says yes, I told Nikhil, if I talk to Anika, she will agree. She asks Nikhil? He says yes, I personally spoke to Nikhil and aunty, she will also accept you. She asks were you talking about my and Nikhil’s marriage. He says yes, what did you think. Nikhil comes to his mum. She says our good days are here, I did such acting that he is ready for everything. He says Anika is proved beneficial. She asks why is Shivaye doing so much for Anika. He says guilt, he broke our marriage and now he is compensation, he doesn’t know that we are making him pay, Anika has self respect, she won’t ask Shivaye for a favor, I know how to benefit out of Shivaye by using Anika. They smile.
Anika says no, nothing, why are you doing all this. Shivaye says for your happiness. She says I don’t know where my happiness lies. He asks her to sit. He gets on knees. He says since I have brought Nikhil’s proposal for you, I ask for your hand on his behalf, will you marry me Anika. She looks at him. He says I mean, will you marry Nikhil…. I will keep you very happy, Nikhil will keep you very happy. He gets up. Nikhil, his parents, Gauri and Chachi gather.
Nikhil’s mum says we have come to join broken relations. Nikhil holds Anika’s hand and says lets forget the past and start afresh, I promise you, I will keep you very happy. Shivaye says you have to, else I won’t let you live happily. Nikhil’s mum apologizes to Anika. She says Shivaye is right, lucky people get bahu like you. Nikhil’s dad says yes, we want to make Anika our dad. Chachi says if Anika is okay with it, consider it a yes from me too. Shivaye says great, this time I will become Anika’s wedding planner, marriage will happen in Oberoi mansion, she will have bidaai from my house. Nikhil holds Anika. Shivaye looks on and says I know you both want to talk, I will take your leave, congrats. He goes and recalls Nikhil and Anika.
He says come on, why am I thinking about it, Nikhil and Anika love each other, I came between them, now I have to bring them together. Anika comes and stops him. She says I want to ask something, what you did for me and Nikhil’s relation, you convinced Nikhil and his mum, then you came to me with his marriage proposal, tell me what should I do, should I marry Nikhil or not. He says I have already told you, this is your life, why are you asking me about your decisions. She says its you who decides everything, you didn’t ask me when you married me forcefully, you didn’t ask me when you denied our marriage, when you handed me the divorce papers, and not even now when you spoke to Nikhil and his mum about my marriage. He says this is what you want, right. She says that’s not the question, what do you want. He says your happiness. She asks why.
He says because you are my friend. She says then tell me what should I do, it hasn’t even been ten days since I got married and my friend wants to get me married again, do you think this is right, tell me, should I get married to Nikhil, I can’t understand. He says you should marry the person you like. She says what if I m confused about it. He says then let destiny decide. She says fine, I will let destiny decide it. She turns to go. Tu jaane na…..plays
